I have recently started to customize my 1955 Ford F100 and i have some really great ideas but don't have the knowledge to do it. for example i would really like to do a power steering conversion. How realistic is this to do? And if i can what will i need to do it with? Also what steps should i take to prep the truck for this change? if any one can give me a tip or a person who i could talk to about this it would really help me out.

Power-steering is very do-able. What engine you have will make a little difference because of pump mounting. Call Classic Performance Products at 800-830-0952 they have a Toytoa style conversion kit. Ditto for disc brakes call CPP.

I'm working on the same 55 F-100 the owner mounted a Toyota p/s box  and we don't know what to do to make the connections to the spindle or column. Would appreciate any help

I have contacted CPP regarding the power steering conversion and they could not give any advice on mounting a GM pump or the drive pulley set-up. Has anyone actually done this? If so please contact me. THANKS!

While I haven't done exactly what you're referring to, I have done some similar projects involving the need to replace pulley systems, use pulley kits, etc. I have had very good luck using the people at Concept One Pulley Systems. Give them a shout and see if they can help with your specific need, like they did for my needs.
